Flood & Water Management Act 2010 - Reservoirs legislation commencement date

23/08/13

Dear BDS Members 

As chair,  I have been working with the ICE to bring pressure to bear on Defra and the government for England to introduce the complete planned changes to the Act, i.e. 'Phase 1' as well as  'Phase 2'.

Today the ICE have released the following press release  (http://www.ice.org.uk/News-Public-Affairs/Media-and-press-centre/Reservoirs-act-delays--concerning--say-ICE-BDS

As part of the subsequent follow up I have been interviewed by the Times with today and look forward to a positive government response 

Regards,
